The second T20I between West Indies and India will be played at the Providence Stadium on August 6. After taking 1-0 in the five-match series, the hosts will be quite buoyant about their chances of upstaging the Men in Blue once more. On the other hand, Team India will need to improve their performance, especially in the batting department, to challenge the Men in Maroon, who are looking a settled side with top-quality players in all departments.
In the first T20I, West Indies batting lineup showcased controlled aggression right throughout the innings, after losing two of their top order batters in quick succession. Nicholas Pooran and captain Rovman Powell scored enterprising 40s each, to propel the first innings total of the Men in Maroon to 149. The bowling department of the West Indies were exceptional with the ball in defending the total, with Romario Shepherd and Jason Holder being pick of the bowlers.
Talking specifically about the batting performance of Team India, they lost the openers Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan, two of the prolific run-scorers in the Caribbean inside the powerplay. The debutant Tilak Varma was quite impressive on his debut, scoring 39 off 22, but the lack of support from other batters in the lineup meant that India lost the first T20I by 4 runs. Moreover, the Indian bowlers had a good outing at the Brian Lara Stadium earlier in the match, with Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav picking up key wickets.
